Two times lucky for one lady

Reporting abandoned trolleys to Trolley TrackerTM has paid off for a second time for Ellenbrook resident Janine Seibel-Smith who has once again been drawn as a lucky $1000 winners.

Since Trolley TrackerTM began it has taken over 1.4 million reports from people helping to return lost trolleys to their home stores.

Information on trolleys is reported directly to one of hundreds of trolley collection teams around the country who retrieve the trolley and return it to its home store.

Ms Seibel-Smith said she has been reporting to Trolley Tracker for many years because it was a great community service and she would continue to report wayward trolley’s whether she won a prize or not.

But she is very happy with her win as her beloved dog has recently experienced some health issues and the $1000 prize would come in handy to pay vet bills.

Residents who see trolleys on their streets can report them online anytime at www.trolleytracker.com.au.

They can also use the smartphone Trolley TrackerTM app, which is available free from the website and the Apple app store or report to the call centre on 1800 641 497.

Trolley TrackerTM works with members of the public to report abandoned Woolworths, BIG W, Target, Dan Murphy’s, Thomas Dux, and Masters trolleys.
